No more guessing: UT releases first depth chart

Mack Brown and Horns released the first depth chart for the game against Rice on September 3rd. Upon first glance, there are a few moves that should excite fans. Of course, first off we have to mention that the quarterback situation remains unchanged from 2010. The “four-way QB battle” has ended exactly like last season with Garrett Gilbert as starter and Case McCoy as his backup. With the depth chart comes the news that third/fourth-string QB Connor Wood is going to transfer to Colorado. With David Ash and verbal commit Connor Brewer in-waiting, you can’t blame Wood for wanting to find a place he could get on the field sooner rather than later. True freshman Jaxon Shipley will start as the H receiver and be the first in line to return punts. Mason Walters will remain at right guard, where he started all 12 games last season, while sophomore Trey Hopkins takes over at right tackle. Calvin Howell wins the battle starting battle at defensive tackle and Angleton High School alumni Quandre Diggs and D.J. Monroe will return kickoffs.
